I had extra time this morning, so I created both of the text videos to upload and announce. The first video covers locating and using the engraving fonts that come free with the KNK Studio software program. There are two types: those with single lines, such as Jott:
and then the types with internal lines, such as 5 Bodkin:
The second video covers using your own fonts and either aligning the rhinestones along the outer lines OR using Center Line Trace to convert the font to a single line similar to the engraving font, Jott, above. The resulting patterns for these fonts appear like this:
So, you have a number of options for handling text and there’s even a couple more. Be sure to check out the next tutorial which will be the first of two tutorials on filling images with circles.
KNK Studio GE is $139, but as I mentioned in an earlier post, it only cuts to the 8″ Graphtec cutters. You can export your designs in a number of standard vector formats, such as .ai, .dxf, and .eps. The Maxx version is $199.
GE only cuts to the Graphtec 8″ cutters: Craft Robo, Wishblade, and Silhouette. KNK Studio Maxx is the software that’s sold with the actual KNK cutters: Maxx and Groove-E.
ooh i see it but what is the difference between the Studio GE and the Studio MAXX
Cann me somebody tell me how much cost the KNK Studio Software ?
Lynn said she would host it at her home… so I may just do that!
